One reply on “100 Things…”

I noticed you said you became allergic to your own tears from contacts?? I (88) I have a similiar thing going on, the dr. tells me I have Giant Pappilary conjunctivitis from overuse of contacts but he also said i’m allergic to my own tears! they burn for days even when not wearing makeup or contacts.
Anything you could possibly elaborate on for me, i’m really confused, I dont understand how that is possible
